Thin 3D model on UM2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Thin 3D model on UM2

Hi,

I try to print this model (http://imgur.com/vQwBFjF and stl file http://www.filedropper.com/budkahamulcowaver2original) but the thickness is very thin (less than 0.4mm) ...

I had to print it horizontally otherwise, the nozzle width is too big vertically.

I added some support to be printable.

The result is not very good.

Do you have advices to make the result more acceptable ?

Thanks

Gauthier

You could try printing it vertically, and simply tell the slicer that you have a much thinner nozzle (or, preferably, actually install a much thinner nozzle). But to be honest, I think the best answer is just to redesign the part to make it printable: you're simply at the limits of what the technology can achieve. Make sure the walls are at least 0.6mm thick - or preferably thicker. Slice it, and then check the layer view in Cura to see how it's going to turn out.

Thanks for your quick reply.

I have the same opinion ;) but I want to try with thinner nozzle parameter.

I will have feeding problems with mismatch between slicer nozzle parameter and real nozzle width, isn't it ?

Thanks
